Update your look for $0

If you’re reading this, then it’s likely you’ll agree that new clothes  make us feel good, for all different reasons. But having recently been forced back into my wardrobe to ‘shop’, it’s surprising how fulfilling that can also be and  how just little tweaks can make something feel fresh again. It’s true, that so often […]

Dressed Down Dressing Up

“Anyone can get dressed up and glamorous but it is how people dress in their days off that are the most intriguing.” – Alexander Wang I’m pretty sure Alexander wasn’t thinking of ‘active wear’, the fashion-scourge of the suburbs, when he said this. Sure, it is easy, fast and comfortable to pull on some lycra, sports […]

The end of trends … today

So the last of the ‘trends’ wrap up – when there aren’t really trends any more, at the same time as there are so many more than I’ve included in this recent wrap up.  But sticking with the original list from whowhatwear.com for now … ‘Pleated pieces’ It has really been a long time between […]

A Pair and a Spare

Of trends, that is. Continuing with the review I’ll chunk a few together today.  Unlike slip dresses, or mules (coming soon), these three feel a little more transient – they may be the fluro to the boyfriend jean, where one burnt bright (literally) and then fizzled, and the other slowly crept into the fashion vernacular and lodged itself. […]

Trending : Slip into something more comfortable

I wanted to do a piece on trends.  But I thought, rather than originate a new list, I’d use and personalise one  from whowhatwear.com.  This is one of my favourite blogs for great images, shopping links and current trend editorial.  There’s a lot on the list though, so I will add to the blog one trend at a […]

Ex-Con seen in Vans

My friend Uli once told me a story about her teenage son. She had asked him if she looked too old to be wearing something. He answered that she looked fine, but the thing he thought was really embarrassing was ‘old people’ (so, I’m guessing, anyone over 30) wearing Converse shoes. I must admit, it did […]

Maxed Out

Originally posted on lifeaswewearit:
I think the maxi is a hard to wear stylish look – whatever your age.  Particularly hard to wear with anything other than a sandal or a sneaker and get the proportions right.  I sort of feel the same about a wide legged trouser.  But it can be such great comfort…

Can’t touch this

Yesterday I posted an outfit that was a bit of a departure from my usual, so this time I thought I’d ping right back to something more comfortable. Literally, as well as stylistically, as I am nothing if not inclined to comfort. Today is an ode to the harem/mchammer/low crutch pant that is so well […]

A scarf a day keeps winter blues away

Source: witanddelight.com I have another post half written that bemoans the dreariness of dressing in winter. I’ll have to keep that for another day, because I found this gorgeous homage to the winter scarf on another’s blog, via pinterest (obsessed!). I love every look. Ironically, winter in Sydney this year is lucky to be mistaken […]

Marant Morning

It’s not really a new look for me is it!  But I’ve been in gym clothes for the last two days so  I thought I should post something. Seems my One Teaspoon pants have become favourite ‘weekend pants’. My daughter got to pick my shoes – it was a choice between these boots and Converse. […]
